Which Drawings To Use
approximately 23 drawings in the Model 1654 4-track PDF directory.

Comments About The Drawings
May 2006 Note - When To
Use The Model 402 Template
the Model 402 template (added May 2006) described in Section
C1, if you
want to build a 4-track control unit from "scratch", rather than
expanding a 2-track unit.
The Model 402 Yard uses
most of the drawings from the earlier 1654 design (Sections D1 thru
D4), but there are 3 new drawings created for the one-piece control
unit: Cover Sheet, template, and parts list.

reference drawings - photos, track layout, schematics, initial
conditions for operating, parts lists, building dimensions, signal
Drawing Confusion ??
can be somewhat confusing, as they have evolved from one design to
another design, and their usage overlaps from one unit to another unit.

opinions, based on what you want to construct.
